Chapter 28. Cry of the Wolf (2)
“I can’t do this. You get some rest.”
“Since only the same monsters keep coming out, Lee Myung-won and I will be able to fight. Alright? You just take a break.”
I patted Baek Tae-beom on the shoulder and walked ahead. Lee Myung-won, who was trampling on a werewolf that had appeared, looked at me.
“Are you okay?”
“As you can see, I’m fine.”
“That’s surprising. I thought it was the exact opposite.”
“Do I look so sloppy?”
“I think you need to eat a little more.”
After hearing those words, I couldn’t just say that I had lived my life with ramen and triangular gimbap. I raised my shoulders awkwardly in lieu of answering. Lee Myung-won smiled briefly and glanced at Baek Tae-beom behind him.
“Are you two friends?”
“Um… Something like that?”
“That’s good. There are some friendships you can only have when you’re young.”
I thought that Lee Myung-won in the novel was the type of person to do things quietly, but this person was actually quite talkative.
Does he resemble his constellation?
“By the way, let me give you a piece of advice…. I would like to recommend Baek Tae-beom not to go to dungeons anymore.”
“Why is that?”
“Like I said, he’s a bit too dependent on his skills.”
Lee Myung-won said, as he pierced the forehead of the fallen monster with the arrow he was holding.
“His movement is almost skill controlled. It’s not something you can consciously fix. If he keeps fighting like that, there will be a day when his body’s energy will run out first and it’ll become dangerous.”
“You’re saying he’s better off not being a hunter?”
“To put it bluntly, yes. It’ll become self-deprecating.”
“Did you tell Tae-beom that as well?”
“I’ve already told him… And he refused.”
Perhaps, this is what they had talked about the other day. That’s why Baek Tae-beom didn’t seem to like Lee Myung-won.
“What do you think is the cause?”
“Well, wouldn’t you know that yourself?”
I sighed at Lee Myung-won’s words.
Lee Myung-won and his constellation… Both of them were negative about Baek Tae-beom. And I thought I knew why at first glance.
In the novel, Baek Tae-beom is the villain who destroys the world. So, naturally, the characters in the novel may have negative feelings for him. Like someone who can guess without knowing the ending.
Because Lee Myung-won, who was Kang Si-hoo’s assistant, was also killed by Baek Tae-beom.
‘Even so… What does it mean?’
To be skill-dominated.
If he does well, he may be able to explain why he was abandoned by the constellations in the novel. It was strange just looking at it. Baek Tae-beom has good physical strength and is smart. So, of course, you should have been born with good abilities and become a high-ranking Awakened, right?
However, after being abandoned by the constellations and suffering for two years, he only vowed revenge, but failed to respond properly. The skills he had were only the skills of the items I gave him, and the unknown skill called [Hermit].
Maybe that skill is the problem.
“I think we should concentrate from now on, Choi Ga-hyun-ssi.”
Interrupting my thoughts, Lee Myung-won spoke.
I couldn’t help but look in front of me. Before me was a huge door that didn’t quite suit the dark cave. It was the boss room in a field-type dungeon.
Baek Tae-beom, who was resting behind us, limped towards me. I looked at him with a worried gaze, but Baek Tae-beom kept looking straight ahead and kept quiet.
“A werewolf monster will appear here too, right?”
“Maybe. Let’s get it over with and get back.”
Lee Myung-won answered briefly and opened the door.
[The last room of the dungeon has been opened.]
[A new quest has been updated.]
[Dungeon <Cry of the Wolf>]
[There is a huge werewolf living inside a dangerous cave.
Stop that werewolf.
“I wonder who took down my servants!”
As soon as we opened the door, I heard the voice of an angry werewolf. Naturally, my head tilted upwards. A face grimly distorted with red eyes, thick fur, sharp teeth, and….
Lee Myung-won muttered in a frustrated voice.
“I wish we had returned early.”
A body so huge that it almost filled the entire room.
I sympathized with Lee Myung-won’s words and clenched my staff tightly.
